The lampwork beads, sometimes referred to as Art beads, are made by myself. I like to use four colours each torch session. I mix and create new shades and colours from the basic glass colours.
Each bead is kiln annealed direct from the flame. The following day when the beads have cooled they are cleaned. Some of the beads are chosen to be made into jewellery and some are sold as loose beads The time spent putting together the jewellery piece depends on the complexity of the wirework involved and can be a morning or 2 to 3 days work. A single necklace takes 3 to 5 days to make.
My inspiration for the jewellery designs are from the world around me; nature and the changing seasons.
I sell PYOG items for the home hobbist and wholesale to PYOG studios who do not wish to be encumbered with the costs of fusing glass.
